Archdiocese discusses school closings appeal process, FDA panel makes lead poisoning recommendation

    Good morning, Feeders!

    To get you over the mid-week hump, Tom MacDonald will have a story for us on new policies at the Philadelphia Sheriff’s office, while Peter Crimmins explores a Chinatown gallery exhibit.

    Lizz Fiedler will speak with the Archdiocese of Philadelphia about the appeals process for schools facing closure. We’ll also hear from some school officials who plan to fight their fate.
    Speaking of school fate, Lizz will have more details on the Chester-Upland School District and its pleas with the state for financial assistance. We’ll find out where the district stands now and what could come next.

    As Peter explores a Chinatown exhibit about dissent, Taunya English will look at FDA recommendations on lead poisoning and how more children could be affected.

    We know casino wins were up last quarter in Atlantic City, but could that have anything to do with bus traffic? Emma Jacobs will examine the increased traffic into the resort town and its effect on casino numbers.
